Kentucky. Lincoln Institute

This series contains the records of the Lincoln Institute/Lincoln School. The Lincoln Institute/Lincoln School was formed in response to the 1904 Day Law, which was upheld by the 1908 Supreme Court decision forbidding the education of whites and blacks in the same Kentucky school. The law was aimed at Berea College, which had been integrated since 1863. The Lincoln Foundation was founded in 1910 and the Lincoln Institute opened in 1912 in Shelby County, KY and closed in 1966. The school offered vocational instruction, unlike the classical education that had been offered at Berea. The first African American president was Dr. Whitney M. Young, Sr. and he led Lincoln Institute for over 40 years as it became a prominent boarding school for African American children.
